Waste Week: Bag £5,000 worth of tech for your school

Do something brilliant with your old electricals this month

Join Waste Week’s Hidden Treasure Hunt – and your school could win thousands of pounds worth of Microsoft tech.

Waste Week’s Hidden Treasure Hunt

The UK’s biggest clear-out of old electricals

Here’s how to take part


Hunt down those old electricals you’ve got buried at home. Anything with a plug, battery or cable counts as treasure.


Bag up your swag and take it to your local branch of Currys. They’ll recycle it for you – and give you a discount voucher. Nice.


Log your recycling as part of your school’s effort – and they’ll be in with a chance to claim one of the great prizes on offer.
